How to get an anthurium plant to bloom

The anthurium plant can flower throughout the year. It generally flowers for about three months, and after that the cycle starts again. Usually you don’t really have to do anything. But what if your anthurium doesn’t flower anymore? In this article, we listed a number of tips about how to get an anthurium plant to bloom again:

Place the plant in a lighter position, don’t water it more often than once a week and give a little extra nutrition. In early spring, stop giving your anthurium plant nutrition for six weeks to two months. Only give it a little bit of water every once a while. When it starts getting warmer and sunnier, you can start giving nutrition and water again. This generally ensures an anthurium plant to bloom again quite quickly.
